Devaney Creates Fond Memories for Coach

By  | 

The Devaney Center is known to many Nebraskans as a hub for championship sports.

For one high school basketball coach, the experience at the Devaney over the years means so much more.

Those memories are why Pender Girls Assistant Basketball Coach Melissa Hansen chose to name her third child Devaney.

Devaney is a reminder of the team's success last year winning state.

Hansen says the Devaney created such a great experience for her growing up and it's still a great feeling being on the court now as a coach.

Hansen says at first her husband wasn't so sure about the name Devaney, but has since warmed up to it.
